virginia. students in a dozen school districts went back to school tuesday morning. in vienna, there were mixed feelings about that. >> how are you feeling first day of school? >> tired. >> little bit nervous. >> i'm excited to see all of my friends i haven't seen over the summer. >> happy to have them out of the house. >> fairfax county is the largest school district in our area with more than 170,000 students and it has seen a spike in enrollment over the past few years, while at the same time they had to deal with fairly major budget cuts. >> we had to make cuts across the board in the classrooms, increasing class size, decreasing services in the schools, the secretarial, custodial, principals. the list goes on. for this school year we have not made any additional cuts. >> still, parents will have to pay 75 bucks if they want their child to take an advanced placement or an advanced test. athletes pay $100 per sport to play. big changes to the fairfax county lunch menus. >>> yes, virginia, there is a santa claus. this week we can say, yes, virginia, there will be christmas in leesburg.
